What people are saying about Edinburgh

Great old palace and gardens at the end of the Royal Mile.

The Holyrrodhouse palace and remains of the Abbey offer an easy display of the life of the Stuarts that can be seen at leisure. A stroll through the gardens is a must. Its location in the heart of Edinburgh and in front of the Scottish Parliament makes it easy to visit.

Plenty of information about the Yacht. Excellent tea and cakes.

Easy to reach from Edinburgh. The Royal Yacht is well worth a visit to see this intimate floating palace. The engine room is spotless and very informative. The tea room with its grat views of the Leith Water and Gormley's sculpture of a man on the pier, offered the best scones and delicious cakes.

Pretty views, fantastic informative guide

This is a long day, but well worth it. He cries are amazing and I learnt lots of history including some family history. Our guide Kenny was very entertaining and kept the tour on schedule. Excellent day

King Dan was exellent raconteur, even if the histories were joking.

Sites wonderful. A longer photo stop on the Firth bridges would;ve been good. Thanks, John + Shinta.

Full of interest, well organised and great for families.

We went here with our sons aged 16, 13, 11, and everyone really enjoyed this tour under the streets of Edinburgh. The guide was fun and enthusiastic and painted a vivid picture of life in ancient Edinburgh, warts and all! For me the highlight was the actual Mary King’s Close itself which was well enough preserved to be able to imagine it as one of Edinburgh’s main streets with bustling market and busy homes and businesses. The tour lasted about an hour and wasn’t cheap, but the guide was great and there was lots to see and learn so I would certainly recommend this tour to others.
